A question for geographers and allies always seems to be will we flounder or flourish? Join Australian Geography Teachers Association Immediate Past President Susan Caldis and Vice President Simon Miller; the Institute of Australian Geographer's President Jen Carter; and others in this latest webinar in our series. Our guests work as geography educators in schools, initial teacher education, higher education, and publishing and advocate for the field, take action to support it, and strategize to deal with pinch points. In this webinar they will consider how and with what effects the future of geography education is in lockstep with the discipline's and profession's futures in postsecondary spaces. Discussion will deliberately be framed around the role of advocacy, curriculum, and pedagogy in light of recent media focus on the Australian Curriculum: Geography. We will include in our conversation a range of provocations and an evidence-based overview with panellists from publishing, research, and teaching backgrounds and invite questions and comments from our audience. We hope the session will provide an opportunity to celebrate geography education.
